Editor's Comments

Lovely vocals track taken from Mitra's latest April Song. Interplay between drums and piano is especially likable about a very enticing song.

About the track

"April Song" is a semi-autobiographical collection of folk and jazz tales, carving Mitra out as an important new voice in the musical landscape. Mitra is joined on the album by some of the most talked about names from the current crop of young jazz musicians, including her husband and co-arranger for the album Tim Giles but also Riaan Vosloo, James Allsopp, Philip Hochstrate, Fulvio Sigurta and Ross Stanley. Born in England to an Indian father and an Irish mother, Mitra was a Cambridge choral scholar and studied North Indian music in Calcutta and folk music in the Caribbean. Jazz became part of the equation when she moved to London and took turns in the capital’s jam nights, taking influence from blues and jazz greats: Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey, Billie Holiday, Anita O’Day, Ella Fitzgerald.
